Age, educational background, and gender of the participating designers vary (85% are female designers). Their specialities are equally diverse, and there will be ten distinct design categories represented at the event, ranging from ready-to-wear to footwear.

The best creative minds in the Kingdom will have the opportunity to network with influential members of the fashion industry, from financiers to environmentalists, by taking part in the first Fashion Week.

The designers attending the event have countless chances to advance, not just globally. In comparison to other sectors of similar size and importance around the world, Saudi Arabia’s fashion industry will soon expand at among the most competitive rates.

A fashion season was held in Saudi Arabia in April 2018, but it was a privately organised event with shows only open to female audiences. The upcoming October season, however, is anticipated to be a significantly more opulent affair given that it is supported by the official Saudi Fashion Commission.

To develop the Kingdom’s fashion sector via culture, enhancing Saudi heritage and identity, while addressing global needs and having an impact on the economy.
